A Drudge Report Link

August 28, 2007

 A Drudgereport link is like “Golden Ticket” in Willy Wonka. It’s the sweet spot of the blogosphere. The very prospect makes a blogger drool. I’ve seen web journalists reduced to tears. I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the blogosphere at dawn looking for an angry Drudge link. From New York

“The Drudge Report is an institution, the seventh-most-visited news Website, ahead of the New York Times, Fox News, and the Washington Post. Getting linked on Drudge can unleash a tsunami of public mentions and e-mails, and journalists cater to Drudge to gain those links, alerting him when their stories have nasty anecdotes. Drudge laughs that journalists ‘kiss the ring.’ Glenn Reynolds, the conservative Tennessee law professor famous as Instapundit, compares Drudge to Johnny Carson: ‘How does a comic really make it big? He goes on The Tonight Show.’ Greenwald echoes, ‘A link from Matt Drudge is in a completely different universe in terms of the traffic it generates than any other link.'”
